Does anyone know from which vehicles both the front round amber indicator lamp unit & also the small dia clear parking light assembly came from for the S4?

The indicator lamp was common to the Healey 3000, and the side lights to the TR4, and a couple of others. Both are available from the normal suppliers.

Try this UK seller. I just purchased the amber front lights and they are identical to OEM. Arrived in 2 days by air mail.

Indicators are as used at the back of Hillman Imps and some Morgans too. Other Imp parts in Elans are the boot hinges, the pedal rubbers and the S3's interior door handles (the protruding type, not the later ones projecting down into the elbow recess).

The front indicator lamp is Lucas L691. You can get the complete lamp or just the lens from eBay.

Examples below:

I bought new side lights L658 from this source - but the price seems to go up weekly:
